Healthy Eggs!

Eggs have been a natural part of the human diet for millennia. While mostly valued as a prime source of protein due to its high quality protein content, the egg has a complex nutritive profile that includes many of the minerals and vitamins that we also need for good health.

Delicious Eggs!

Windmeul’s egg farmers work hard to provide you with fresh eggs of Grade A quality. It typically takes 3 to 7 days for eggs to get “from farm to table” and we maintain a constant, optimum cold chain from farm to store. The eggs are collected on the farms, graded and packaged then transported to the grocery store.

The Humpty Dumpty Omelette

The omelette is a classic dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch or supper.  As so many foods go so well with eggs, there are endless variations on fillings.

What you will need?

4 happy Humpty Dumpty eggs
125ml milk (or cream)
Salt and pepper to taste
A filling of your choice

Let’s cook!
Break the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the milk or cream and seasoning, and whisk together.
There are two key methods to cook an omelette.

To Fry: Pour the egg mixture into a hot buttered frying pan.  Once the base has begun to cook sprinkle over the filling.  Fold 1/3 of the omelette into the middle and then the remaining 1/3 into the middle. Flip the omelette over to finish cooking before sliding the omelette whole onto a plate.

To Bake: Add the filling ingredients to the egg mixture.  Pour into a deep, hot, oiled pan, keeping the pan on heat until the base and sides have just begun to colour and pull away from the sides. Place the pan in a medium oven at 180ºC for 5-10 minutes until the middle is cooked and browned before turning out and serving in slices.

Tip:  Some ideas for omelette fillings are-
the ‘classics’ – cheddar cheese and ham; bacon and mushrooms; spinach and feta cheese
the ‘gourmet’ –  red peppers and baby marrows; caramelised onion and roasted cherry tomatoes;
oyster mushrooms and mung bean sprouts that have been lightly stir-fried with soy sauce

Eggs Benedict
There is debate over who created this recipe but the most likely story credits Mr and Mrs LeGrand Benedict, regulars at New York's Delmonico's Restaurant, who complained there was nothing new on the menu.
